Hello Ladies,

Please enjoy your work at home while you listen.


Scripture I read:

Galations 6:9-10



Kitchen towel from Hobby Lobby (online order)

What I wore


pattern: vintage Laura Ashley 3929

Before you sew this pattern, you need to know there is a zipper in the back and there are no working buttons and buttonholes in the front. I changed it so that it is a front button and no zipper.

Thrive at Home



Please enjoy your home while you listen to the message today:



In my mail-- newsletter by Amy, from "On the Journey" blog:

Poem I read:


“Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea.
And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.

Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown;
You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on.
They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go,
And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow.

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget,
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred,
And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave
Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget;
But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy a-circling yet,
And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard
Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.”


― James W. Foley

Be Prepared


Teacup by Meritage

Hello Ladies, Please enjoy your home while you listen to today's lesson:



What I wore:


With apron,
and with jacket


This ensemble was from Blair catalog, online and available at your home address mailbox. 

From "Stampin Up" Catalog:




Today I enjoyed this 7 minute "workout" stretch routine. Follow along or find another type of exercise that suits your needs. 


Another note: Often I tell you what video's I've watched recently or anything I found
of interest in books or on the web. Invariably you will find these people to be flawed in some way, for not all of them follow the Bible or our Lord, Jesus Christ.  It would be nice if exercise were just exercise and art was just plain art, but the teachers often insert their own politically correct views.  Of course it is not wise to allow any unChristian view to influence members of your family, but as mature women, we need to be able take the general information and be discerning about it. Everywhere you go, whether for shopping or just passing through town, you will see something offensive.  It is important to be able to be "in the world and not of the world," by distinguishing what can be absorbed mentally and spiritually, and what must be rejected.  I can't go through every vlog or blog I share and find out if it is acceptable enough for everyone. While I do share what I watch, I know it isn't for everyone, nor do I actually recommend it as a guide for your life.

A New Word for the Home








Please enjoy your home life today while you listen. I have a new word for you: Happiosity. It comes from another new word of mine, which is "happious."  It needed to be invented, because it is awkward to use "happy" or "happiness" in some sentences.  It means "filled with happiness." This day was so happious. Those people are filled with happiosity.



Some of the gift I unboxed for you today:



What I wore at home today: above, with apron, below,
with jacket.


Detail of blouse:




Tea set by "Elegance" purchased from Marshalls and Ross, both "seconds" or "reject" discount stores.
